It was a busy week for Varvaro, who saw time in four games for two different teams. With Scott Linebrink being activated from the DL for Atlanta on Sunday, Varvaro was optioned back to Gwinnett where he picked up the loss in his first game back with the team. He performed as expected for Atlanta, putting up huge strikeout numbers, worrisome walk rates and an impressive .206 BAA. He has a live arm and could realistically be brought up to Atlanta when rosters expand in September.
This Week (MiLB): 1 G (0-1), 1.2 IP, 3 ER, 3 H, 1 K, 2 BB
This Week (MLB): 3 G (0-0), 2 IP, 2 ER, 3 H, 2 HR, 3 K, 0 BB
Season (MiLB): 34 G (2-7), 1 SV, 53.1 IP, 3.10 ERA, 60 K, 32 BB
Season (MLB): 7 G (0-0), 9 IP, 3.00 ERA, 16 K, 6 BB
Chris Cody, RHP (Double A - Mississippi)
Cody made his second start of his Braves career this past week, with nothing too noteworthy to report. His .333 BAA in two starts this season is high, despite solid enough peripheral stats, but I guess it's better to see him around the zone too often at this point than having issues with command.
This Week: 1 G (0-0), 5 IP, 3 ER, 6 H, 2 K, 2 BB

This Week: 1 G (0-1), 5 IP, 9 H, 4 R (2 ER), 4 K, 0 BB
Season (Danville, Rome & Lynchburg): 26 G (0-3), 2 SV, 56.2 IP, 3.18 ERA, 47 K, 21 BB
Dave Filak, RHP (Rookie - Danville)
Filak put up another encouraging start this past week, arguably his best of the year, in his first win for Danville. Over his past five starts (25.2 IP) at Danville, he's 1-1 with a 3.16 ERA, 24 K and just 5 BB. His rookie league ERA still sits north of six, but the past few weeks have provided glimpses of why he was an early round pick for the Braves in 2010.
This Week: 1 G (1-0), 6 IP, 1 ER, 2 H, 6 K, 0 BB
Season (Danville & Rome): 21 G (3-9), 91.1 IP, 6.80 ERA, 71 K, 46 BB
